A pair of Lancaster brothers have been arrested for the armed robbery of a grocery store Monday evening.

Troy and Tyler Frey, both of the 900 block of East Walnut Street, were taken into custody minutes after the hold-up at the Superstar Grocery in the 600 block of N. Lime Street, city police said.

Troy Fry, 23, is accused of pointing a handgun at the store owner and demanding money from the cash register. When the register would not open, he grabbed it and fled on foot, police said.

Troy and 21-year-old Tyler Fry were stopped a short time later by an officer in the 500 block of Burrowes Avenue. Troy Fry fled on foot and was stopped about a block away. The store clerk later identified him as the robber, police said.

Tyler Fry was arrested on a summary warrant.

Both were interviewed by detectives and charged with robbery and criminal conspiracy. Each was sent to Lancaster County Prison on $100,000 bail.

Police said a pellet gun was found in Troy Fry's path of escape and the cash register was later found by officers in the 600 block of N. Jefferson Street.
